Ultralingua Coupon Code – search for a serial number or purchase with an Ultralingua Coupon?

I had been using the Ultralingua English dictionary for years then and I felt lost when I had to rebuild my system and realized that the Ultralingua serial/license for Version 6 was lost in the same disk disaster as my last 2 weeks of work without a safety backup. And I did not use only the English dictionary, but also Ultralingua in French, Spanish, German and Italian, so useful when checking paid translations for usability manuals.

The immediate rush when something like this happens to is to do literally whatever it takes to put things back in place – even if it means googling for ultralingua crack, ultralingua key, ultralingua keygen or plain ultralingua rapidshare. It feels as if you are not doing the wrong thing, having paid for the software and all.

Fortunately in a moment of inspiration I asked my Twitter followers what they think I should do and a charitable soul suggested a coupon code to purchase the latest version (Ultralingua Collins Pro English Dictionary v7) with a nice discount of 40%. And for this reason I hurry to share it with you and suggest you pay for the tools you use, even when you feel entitled to do otherwise. It is not the fault of the nice people at Ultralingua that my hard disk failed, nor that I did not have a backup. But I definitely want to keep them in the business and working to maintain the dictionaries updated – this is definitely one of the best products of its kind.

So here it is – visit the Ultralingua store at store.ultralingua.com (opens in new window) and use coupon code “ULTRA40OFF” at checkout to save on your purchase. If you try it and works for you, please come back and comment here, it could help other people too.

    I bought almost 2 years ago the version 6. It’s a amazing software. I like the interface, and all the features, really simple and direct to use. Whatever I did not upgrade to version 7 because to me it’s a little bit expensive. I have two dictionaries. Ultralingua is the best dictionary to Mac nowadays. I hope they keep the good job, with some small improvements, and also a little bit less expensive updates.

    I’m a teacher and a professional translator. I’ve been using Ultralingua through all its versions since around 1999 when it was one of the first electronic dicos for Mac on the market. Over the years I’ve experimented with, but definately not bought, many others on both Mac & PC. I use Ultralingua for Spanish/English, German/English, and German/French, and the monoligual French dictionary and thesaurus.

    Pros: Simple download and ease of installation. Wide lexical base for collegiate and non specialised pro use. Speed: results as-you-type. OneClick back translations. Lots of examples of language in use. The grammar sections, the conjugator, the embedded forum, and best of all the HOTKEY (which launches the app automatically) are all additional features that don’t come with most other dictionaries in the same price range. The flashcard feature is useful in teaching situations.

    Cons: Minor: Needs some improvement to the language selector system when working in multiple languages on one document. Not enough free upgrades to the lexical databases. Could do with an ‘insert’ button to put a found result directly into a work document.

    Summary: I’ve always appreciated its uncluttered resizable interface and results display. The lexical info is excellent and offers more than most dicos in the same price range, including IPA pronunciation, irregular German plurals, pre and post spelling reform, and regional variations. There may be an occasional word missing, but it is not a intended to be a complete lexis for every language in the range of products, and does not mar its quality. Other dictionaries from large traditional publishers have a similar rate of inaccuracies. Particularly useful is the conjugator although I don’ t personally use it much except for rare subjunctives etc. Very stable application, rarely if ever, causes any crashes. Low memory and CPU consumption, and can be left runnig in the background. I think the bad reviews are spam from competitors or people using old versions. I’ve always had good, friendly service support and a refund for anything that didn’t work. Those who don’t get replies from customer service probably don’t express themselves politely enough. I’m very satisfied, I buy the pay-for upgrades willingly, and I see no need to change. Keep supporting this good product!

    I confirm the CyberMonday coupon works for all products and ULTRA40OFF only for English Pro. But you can buy twice, just like me :-p
